Futures W.A.G (Week at a Glance)

3.16.15

The "Marching" feeling of March.

During this lead up to the spring break please keep your structures in place: bathroom passes at recess, hierarchy, sticking to your schedule etc. I recently taught our third grade for the day and at some point I felt very comfortable with everything, so I loosened up on seating etc. Within a half hour I saw this was not the best choice for me or the kids. Stay positive. Focus on the work itself, not the emotions. Last week, emotions ran high. You continue to do amazing work. The ebb and flow of March will be over soon!


A Definition: The "Futures Way" :

The "Futures Way" is to do whatever it takes to build up our students and their families for academic and social success.



Shout Outs!!!


Heather, for helping with SBAC.

Mike, for his commitment to PBIS.

Mary, for being out at the 8:15 line and supporting the line order.



Reflection on what went well last week (school-wide)

The data for F and P definitely has some places to celebrate! Also, thank you for the hard work on conferences.



Challenges

Bathroom clarification:

We agreed to stick to our times when possible and to use passes at late afternoon recess.


Deliverables:


By Friday, to Evodia (instead of Rachel) your No Nonsense Tracker.



PLC during Fitness


We will have an agenda on Monday night.



Behavioral Tips


I saw a teacher at Think College Now do something really effective. On his Elmo camera he wrote out the 3 steps for the transition to recess, including small icons of a stick figure pushing a chair in, etc. It really worked. He did not have to speak!








Wednesday PD:

I will know by Monday night if we are having math .
